Saab 98 was an automobile built by Saab in 1974 which never reached full production. Originally it was called X14, it designed by Björn Envall as a combi coupé based on the Saab 95 and using its floorpan. The prototype was assembled by Sergio Coggiola, who had already done work on the Saab Sonett III.

Only a handful of test cars were built up to 1976 before the project was abandoned when Saab decided there was no room in the market for a car between the Saab 95 and Saab 99. [1]

The only surviving 98, licence plate (Swedish) AYX 330, started its life as a white Saab 95 registered on 7 September 1973.[2] It is currently painted 'Siena Brown' and on display in the Saab Museum in Trollhättan.
